Dying on the Dock

For two days straight I’ve discovered a dead fish on the dock. At some point in the middle of the night, the fish jumped out of the water and accidentally landed on the dock.

I’m sure there was a bit of struggle as the fish fought for that suffocated breath.

Sure, it was a minor mistake, but that’s no reason for the fish to have to die.

This school year has had its share of fish on the dock. Out of our routine. Out of our norm.

But it’s no cause for “dying” on the dock.

It’s only more reason to try harder. Get back in the water and keep going.
